 SOYO

The purpose of the Society of Orthodox Youth Organization (SOYO) is to integrate each young person fully into the Total life of the Church.

SOYO brings its members to a deeper devotion to the Holy Orthodox Church, its faith, canons and worship. Teen SOYO creates and fosters ministries to encourage Members to commit themselves to living the Orthodox Faith daily. The combination of Worship, Witness, Service and Fellowship are the natural expressions of that commitment.

To support our SOYO program with a donation

please see Laura, Saleem or Yvonne.

A special reception followed the graduation ceremony in the Joy Hall.
